Whether lawmakers should reform the state’s workers’ compensation program is shaping up to be a top legislative issue this fall. Business and labor groups contend that treatments are too expensive and see a fee schedule as a solution.

Provider groups tell a different story. They say costs per claim are below the national average, while patient satisfaction rates remain high and workers return to the job faster than other states. Learn more about the latest legislative proposal, including new efforts to combat opioid abuse, at a Wisconsin Health News panel, Tuesday Nov. 7 in Madison.

Joanne Alig, Senior Vice President of Policy and Research, Wisconsin Hospital Association
